This paper compares on a per subscriber basis the capital cost requirements of several new home services provided via a number of delivery system alternatives. The study was limited to alarm monitoring, electronic information, messaging, energy load management and pay-TV services, since it is expected that these services will play an important role among new telecommunicatin services offered to homes during the 1980' s. Since the role and penetration of new network architectures and technologies in the local distribution plant during the 80's is uncertain only existing off-air broadcast, telephone and coaxial cable networks and their suitably augmented versions have been considered as delivery network alternatives.
